The Student Ambassador Program is a leadership opportunity for students who are dedicated to serving and representing SUNY Korea. Student Ambassadors serve as the University’s liaisons with current students, prospective students and special guests. Since 2017, Student Ambassadors have been chosen to support and help “host” major campus functions including the various events on campus such as New Student Orientation and many other distinguished programs.
